Thank you for visiting the Website for the Benton County Mosquito Control District. Since 1969 we have been providing mosquito control services.

The Benton County Mosquito Control District is dedicated to responsibly improving the quality of life and increasing public education in our area. The District accomplishes this by utilizing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies. IPM is designed to utilize cost-effective control measures to reduce mosquito populations and the diseases they potentially carry, while being environmentally sensitive.
Communication and cooperation with property owners, residents and governmental agencies are critical components in the effort to reduce mosquito populations. Benton County MCD strives to be open and responsive to our community.
West Nile Virus
West Nile virus is established and active within the Benton County Mosquito Control District. The District is aggressively combatting this mosquito-borne illness by reducing mosquito populations and attempting to interrupt the disease cycle. Your assistance is vital in this endeavor. Turning out any calm, non-flowing water (not pools or other treated water) that can remain for 5 or more days will remove needed habitat for immature mosquitoes. Using an appropriate insect repellent is the best personal line of defence against mosquito bites and infection.
